Hi all experts

I have a problem with a html-document in Netscape.

Here's the code:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<style type="text/css">
#errormessage { top: 120px; left: 325px; position: absolute;  visiblity: visible; }
#message { top: 360px; left: 150px; position: absolute; visiblity: visible; }                              
p { font-family: verdana,arial,sans-serif; font-size: 10px;  }
span { font-family: verdana,arial,sans-serif;  }
input { font-family: verdana,arial,sans-serif; font-size: 10px; }
div { font-size: 9px; }
</style>
<TITLE>Exonerate - Login</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY BGCOLOR="ADBDC6" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginHeight="0" marginwidth="0">
<table cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" border="0">
<tr><td><img src="images/login_bg.gif" height="100" width="100" border="0"></td></tr>
<tr><td><img src="images/login_bg.gif" height="100" width="100" border="0"></td><td width="201"><img src="images/login/logo.gif" border="0" width="201"></td>
<td width="217" valign="top" align="left"><img src="images/login/feilmeldinger.gif" border="0" width="217"></td></tr>
<tr><td></td><td></td><td>
        <table cellpadding="0" border="0">
        <form method="post" action="/index.html">
        <tr><td><p><b>Brukernavn:&nbsp;</td><td><INPUT type="text" name="alfa" size="20"></td></tr>
        <tr><td><p><b>Passord: &nbsp;</td><td><INPUT type="password" name="beta" size="20"></td></tr>
        <tr><td colspan="2" align="right"><INPUT type="image" src="images/login/logginn.gif" border="0" name="logon" value="Logg p&aring;"></td></tr>
        </FORM>
        </table>
</td></tr>
<tr><td></td><td COLSPAN="2"><img src="images/login/driftsmeldinger.gif" border="0"></td></tr>
</table>


<div id="errormessage">
<table width="200">
<tr><td><p>Her kommer feilmeldingene.....</td></tr></table>
</div>
<div id="message">
        <table width="400" border="0">
        <tr><td>
        <P>Her kommer det driftsmeldinger etter hvert.. Her kommer det driftsmeldinger etter hvert..  </td></tr></table>
</div>
</BODY>
</HTML>

The problem is that the content of the layers won't be placed where it should be. The first layer("errormessage") is OK, but the second one is placed in the  bottom right corner. It seems to me that the first layer makes this problem because if I Cut & Paste so that layer errormessage comes first it's showing on the right place. But then, the other layer is placed far low to the right.

In IE, the page shows exactly as it should.

Any obvious reason to my problem?

Thanks in advance!

Simple problem... the Paragraph tag is not closed...

Try replacing the line:
     <tr><td><p>Her kommer feilmeldingene.....</td></tr></table>
with:
     <tr><td><p>Her kommer feilmeldingene.....</p></td></tr></table>

Hope this helps,

Simple as that!???!??!??!??

I use to avoid </p> because of the extra line-space it creates.

Thanks !!!
